Fourteen-year old Lilly Platt’s journey into climate activism began in 2015 when they and their grandpa went on a walk in their neighbourhood and decided to count the amount of plastic they saw.
Lilly was shocked by the results—so much plastic in such a small area. This was the incentive to create Lilly’s Plastic Pick Up.
Lilly talks to Anitha not only about this initiative but all the other actions they have taken to help animals and the planet.

Lilly is truly an extraordinary young person. As a thank you to Lilly for sharing their story, Anitha donated to World Wildlife Fund.
